Rattles have been a classic baby's first toy for thousands of years, with good reason. A rattle is a great all around tool to support early developmental stages. Adults can use rattles to support baby's growth during active play periods.
At first, babies will hold the rattle practicing a strong grasp reflex.
When placing a colorful rattle, just out of baby's reach, infants are more motivated to lift their head, learn to roll or squirm toward the rattle. All of these developmental steps prepare a baby for crawling.
When adults hold and slowly move a rattle, babies may visually track with their eyes, helping coordinate the eyes together as the toy moves.
The rattle supports auditory development. When babies hear the soft sound of a rattle, they will turn their head towards the sound.
Happy Clown has a solid natural surface, make it a great teether as well as a clutch toy. Babies chew and gnaw on the wooden surface to help soothe their gums when cutting new teeth. The rattle has been designed in solid maple hardwood, so teething is safe.
The moving circles that make up this clown can be twisted, turned and spun around, further developing baby's fine motor skills, engaging attention span.
Promotes dexterity, eye-hand coordination and manipulation as baby will eventually learn to hold the rattle in one hand and transfer the rattle to the other hand.
